.s. supreme court at the university of alabama law school. >> i'm having to get used to that title. we appreciate your service in this role. i join inand welcoming justice kagan to the university of alabama. we are honored by your presence. i want to give you a few vital statistics about our speaker. she u.s.-born in new york city. she received her a.b. from princeton. she went to oxford where she was awarded a masters of philosophy. then a jd from harvard law school. on r law school she clerked the united states court of appeals for the d c circuit under justice marshall. she practiced for a while and washington d.c. and then became a law professor at the university of chicago. serve infrom there to president clinton's administration in several roles and then she went back to teaching at harvard and was subsequently named as dean of , first femalehool dean of the law school there. in 2000 nine, president obama nominated her for solicitor general of the united states and she served in that office for a asr and was then nominated an associate justice of the supreme court. 2010ook that p
to shrill for this bad law. i feel sorry for them because the mittology they are trying to create about obamacare is very different from the reality most people are experiencing. and when you say you can keep your doctor if you are willing to pay more, that's a very different statement than you can keep your doctor, period, which is what the president said. >> actually, i thought when i heard that, i couldn't think if it was arrogant or we americans were some sort of social experiment in the petri dish. they didn't understand american people for the most part having to pay more means a whole lot more to people. maybe not to people who make a lot of money but to most people. i was surprised when i heard that. >> when you get outside of the washington bubble. i was reading today some the emails and letters that have come into our office. these are incredibly real and profound impacts on people's lives. we had a couple that had sent in and said that their premium were going up by $400 a month. >> that's a lot of money. >> deductible gone up by $1,400. i feel like the federal government jus
-provided insurance who are not affected by the health care law are soon going to see themselves booted off those plans has employers decide to push employees into health exchanges. is that a real danger that americans should be worried about or is this just another fear tactic, something that the gop is using to scare people? >> at the moment i think this is just a big fear tactic. right now i have insurance through the washington post. they don't have to do anything. they don't have to give me a dollar of insurance. the affordable care act, the main change it makes is actually they would have to pay money if they didn't give me insurance so it becomes a more costly proposition for them to stop giving me insurance. the republican argument is it making it harder for employers to stop giving insurance, will mean more of them do it. it's an odd look at it. the best evidence we have on this coming out of the massachusetts reforms, which are very similar to obama care which also have a very similar kind of employer mandate, they have had no employer dropoff. in fact more employers are offering insura
to sign into law a five cent gasoline tax increase 31 years ago when a nickel a gallon was real money. a user fee is in fact a different category from a general tax increase. the various groups that score such votes treat user fees differently. as we are attempting to resolve budget differences, there's an opportunity to embrace more transportation resources through user fee mechanisms that will have broad national support and not inspire the same fierce philosophical debate that's plagued and paralyzed our deliberations for years. it has the added benefit of being the fastest way to put hundreds of thousands of people to work at family wage jobs to help boost our flagging economy. i strongly urge my colleagues to take a step back and look at this as a way to crack the code, to meet vast unmet needs of our constituents and stabilize a critical part of our budget. who knows? if we can find a way to thread this particular transportation funding needle, how many additional opportunities are there to solve problems going forward if we can address them? this is what it -- i think what it t
at a pep rally and showing that most done like this signature law. forced to read an apology on cam. i hope you are having a great day. we are live now at the white house. earlier today he turned to the economy calling the growing income gap a defining challenge of our time. chief white house correspondent ed henry is with us. >> this is a president who has been struggling in dealing with the health care law. how does he do that. partly by rallying in this political base. before the liberal group center for american progress. that is another key part of his base. they helped elect him and get those young people out there talking about the health care law and talking about what you said he wanted to really stress at this economic speech which is what he calls the defining issue of our time. listen to this. >> if republicans have concrete plans that will actually reduce in equality and build the middle class let's hear them. i want to know what they are. if you don't think we should raise the minimum wage, let's hear your ideas. >> you hear the president there calling out republicans on the h
of the year. we find ourselves starting to think about time. time, which is running out on a law that keeps plastic guns from being able to make it through metal detectors at airports and schools. and if congress does renew the law in time this week, it may come with a pretty big loophole. is anything going to happen this week? we'll also be taking a look this morning at everyone's fascination with the new pope. pope francis. with what may be an evolution on his part away from hot button social issues and toward economic ones. he's got liberals loving him. he's got conservatives attacking him. he's like no pope we have seen before. speaking of the catholic church, since it is a sunday, we thought we would introduce or maybe reintroduce our guests to the sacrament of confession, unburdening ourselves of our unpopular political opinions. stick around for that. when is an important question in politics, so is where. as in where do you live, where do you come from? we'll talk liz cheney, scott brown, and the art of carpetbagging. we have five easy steps to make sure you don't mess it up. but, f
johnson is talking about today, although a democrat, ezekiel emanuel, one of the architects of the law insists the more people learn about the benefits, the more they'll like it. take a listen. >> in wisconsin, a young man, 27 years old, his -- on average his insurance costs will increase by 124%. from $1,100 a year to over $2,400 per year. that's because of obama care. >> no one has launched a big pr campaign to get these people signed up because of the problems with the federal website. we are about to launch a big pr campaign. and that, i think, is going to persuade a lot of people. >> now, as part of that pr campaign, as mr. emanuel calls it, today the white house is trying to tout the fact that medicaid is being expanded all around the country to get millions of people who don't have insurance right now covered. of course, that means taxpayers kicking in the money to cover these folks. the question is going to be whether or not the math adds up in the end. whether you can get enough young, healthy people to sign up for the law in order to help pay for all these millions of folks c

been telling you for years that the president's health care law needs to be repealed and replaced. now a majority of americans agree with us according to a newly released gallup poll. 52% say they favor repealing or scaling back obama care. only 37% said it should be kept the way it is or expanded. that's not only the troubling news we have to share on a conference call with reporters today a cms spokesman said on health care.gov one of every ten transactions is experiencing errors. also according to politico things would be worse. that's worse for the administration. a new report reads enrollment surge or no the next challenge is a big one. how will the white house make sure all the people with cancelled policies get new coverage by january 1. even with the speedier newly functioning website they have a vast distance to travel before the estimated 4 to 5 million people with cancelled policies get new health care coverage. it is not out of the question that the obama administration could pace the worst case scenario on january 1 -- the number of uninsured american goes up. pathetic. we
, but how do we stay in -- >> it stumbles on, this law. are your colleagues hoping it dies of its own weight? that's easier said than done. >> i hope it goes away. i'm the author of the bill to repeal obama care. we want this to go away because it's killing jobs in this country. killing the economy. it's hurting people's lives in a real-time basis. middle class -- >> does it -- sorry, ma'am, does it bug you when democrats go, yeah, they're going at bashing, but they don't have a plan of their own. there are half a dozen plans -- >> more than that. >> republicans, some say, want to annihilate this and do nothing in return. >> it's political. if you want to address the situation, do one thing -- let people buy any health insurance policy they want, anywhere in america, with no minimum federal requirement. you do that alone, you solve all sorts of problems with access to health care. then give a liability shield to anyone who wants to offer charitable health care. if you do that, you can deal with the poor, you can deal with the middle class, you can deal with the wealthy, and then this sorts i
know may have, eh, played a little bit with the tax laws in this country to get a little bit better return. or maybe not have to pay so much. are they takers? you'll say it's legal. well, it's legal to get food stamps. how about those oil companies that take your tax subsidies? would they be takers? oh, no. how about those folks in detroit that are getting all these tax breaks because they're, quote, bringing business while employees who spent 30 years working for the city are getting shafted with their pension. there's no takers in that deal at all, is there? what about walmart? they have never had a tax abatement on any land going into any city, putting up one of those superstars, have they? no, there's no takers there at all. they only made $19 billion. i can't think of another corporation out there that might need another tax break. but you know what we're talking about over on the right, we're convincing americans that it's those damn food stamps. they're the problem. they're the takers, those fat, poor people. how come they can't find work? it's their fault. they're lazy. and

care comes as the president will talk about the benefit of this health care law. yesterday, president obama defended the affordable care act and suggested if republicans have better ideas they should bring them to the stable. >> the bottom line is this law is working and will get started with the exchanges, with the marketplaces, so we're not going to walk away from it. if i've got to fight another three years to make sure this law works, then that's what i will do. i have always said, i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want to make that clear. >> you know, if what the president said is introduce. then that's a marked change since the first time the health care law went through. the republicans had scores of amendments that harry reid killed. never let him discuss it on the floor. never got a vote on the floor, so if the president now wants to work with republicans as well as democratsed on on this health care bill, who knows, maybe we can move for
this wouldn't work. today is not a good day for the complainers league. it looks like the health care law is open for business. it looks like after all the misery love company types have had their say, a solid majority of the country wants the president's program to make it. the website, we're told, is working. as i said, what a bad day for those little trolls who live under the bridge. david corn is the washington bureau chief nor mother jones magazine and michael tomaski is with the daily beast. i want you to look at this poll and what people think about this. right now 55% of the country supports the idea of making it work. they want to keep it as it is, make it work. only 43% want to repeal it. another interesting number, a little more nuanced according to a current cnn orc poll. a majority of americans 53% said it was too soon to tell. saying it's not seen its day in court. not yet. keep in mind these polls were conducted before improvements to the law's website were announced over the weekend. so, david, there's good objective news and good perceptive news. totally 180 from the way
into replace and repeal after years of quotes and votes to undo the president's healing care law, they have to figure out what to do as the base meets a new reality. hillary clinton's shadow campaign marches on, why is bill clinton talking about one of his most famous campaign quotes from 1992. it's not it's the economy, stupid. in ukraine it looks like a cold war up rising stuck in a debate over democracy. we will go live to kiev for the latest. good morning from washington. this is "the daily rundown." coming up, a deep dive into bit coin and how it could fit into the world's phi national future. this is a wild new currency gaining steam online. let's get to the first reads of the morning. you can call the last month and a half for the republican party. after losing the last two contests after the shut down in the midst of a battle in the party, republicans clearly have the political swlj it comes to health care. they are in a bit of a quandary. they believe healing care is a winning issue, they are not sure of the next move. the president will test out some of the themes of the upcoming
and republicans coming together to launch the interstate freeway system, signed into law by president eisenhower, subsequent roads, transit and water investments helped fuel our economy and tie the nation together. more recently, the failure to address long-term funding has also been bipartisan. the bush administration ignored strong recommendations from their own private sector experts that they impaneled to give advice. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has secured here in washington, the gap in the highway trust fund has been growing and conditions of our roads, bridges and transit systems have been deteriorating. this puts america at a competitive disadvantage, complicates the movement of goods and people and contributes to congestion and pollution. at the same
in the district, we've made some modifications through a comprehensive committee that include law enforcement, representative from the juvenile justice system, the courts and we recognize there's a huge issue here that we need to address. there's been a -- >> okay. let me quickly get way in, kenneth, the concept of zero tolerance was clearly created for a reason. has it gone in the wrong direction? what changed in education that we really needed this? >> what a didn't hear an answer to is what is zero tolerance. my question having worked in school for 30 plus years is what is zero tolerance? is that a 50% tolerance or 25% tolerance or is that what we're going to? i agree there are concerns about suspensions, puexpulsions and arrests. i'm not an advocate of this, there are disproportionate implications as well. my concern is out on the front lines in the school, what does that equate to. what is a minor misdemeanor that we're now going to handcuff school police officers and tell them they're not allowed to apply the law. if my child is assaulted in school, are they not allowed to follow the la

. he has said, and this is coming from a senior official close to the investigation, a senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation that the driver said i was in a daze. i don't know what happened. and this was -- he was referring thering to coming along that straight section of track and hitting the curb at 72 miles an hour. he had gone in the previous two minutes from 60 miles an hour to 72 miles an hour on the 30-mile-an-hour rated curve, applying the brakes literally five seconds before the train came to a rest. essentially almost as if it was coming off the rails at the same time. so that does seem to tally with what he's saying. obviously, fatigue of all the crew involved is something that the ntsb will be looking at. they will be looking at the 72 hours previous to see what he was doing, where he had been,ing what -- whether or not there might be something that would have caused him to be, in his words, in a daze, wolf. >> you say he was going 72 miles an hour. yesterday the ntsb said the train was going 82 miles an hour as it hit that 30-mile-an-hour

the work force earlier? >> i think it's starting right now. for example, law schools are reducing sizes of classes and several prominent business schools did not raise enough applications last year to start a first year class. for example, george mason university did not have a first year class here in virginia. and, you know, i know my program, my part-time program, which is our bread and butter, our enrollment is down. you've got to deliver jobs and value in the end. i don't think that's happening. >> that's smart. every time unemployment numbers come out, smart economists say, wait a second. the real measure here is work force participation. what percentage of american whose can work, who want to work, are working? why isn't that the number the government releases and that we use as our common currency of this conversation? >> it does release it, right alongside the unemployment numbers but the press is just interested in the unemployment number because it's a sexy number, one we've used over tile. like the headline number for the cpi or the core number for the cpi and people are awa

backgrounds, the best law schools in america they went to. they all have good work records. but they have objected to them. so, you know, madam president, my friend, who i have great admiration for, the senior senator from the state of tennessee, he has a stellar record, a governor of the state, a cabinet secretary, and he's been a very fine senator. but in his heart he knows what's going on here in the senate has been wrong. and he may criticize the majority leader for working to change the rules here, but, madam president, they've been changed before, they're going to be changed again. it simply is not working and who can complain about majority vote? who can complain about that? someone talks about this filibuster as if it's something that's engraifn someplace along -- graven someplace along with the ten commandments. but it's not in the constitution, it's something we've developed in the senate for rules. it helped to get legislation passed but my friend, the republicans the last number of years have used it to defeat legislation. so these nominations should have been approved, we sho
of the health care law. what does that entail? >> this is what democrats wanted for two years. they say every day between now and december 23rd they will do some event to talk about each day one different good part of the health care law in their view. the idea is they got to do something about this sinking poll numbers for health care reform. they got to recalibrate the debate gaven they went through the worst possible coverage of the roll out. the question is, can that work. if the site does work. if people does start to get health care coverage you'll get a different debate. the question is how much damage was done and is this thing fixed? you guys had a good conversation yesterday on the show yes the front end fixed but is the back end fixed in a way to lead people getting coverage that they can trust that insurance companies know what benefits they are getting as far as subsidy from the government to provide. >> if you go on this big campaign to highlight the website and highlight the plan and program it better work, right? so the front end of the website will work but there's problems w
. >>> gun laws take effect today. some of the changes are if they have lost firearms, they have to call the police within 48 hours. they have to lock up their guns when not in use. the nra has vowed to fight that new law in court. >>> a local genetic testing company that was ordered to stop selling its testing kits says it will comply with the food and drug administration's demands. they claim to test for disease risk. they get a small tube in the mail and return it to the company for dna analysis. the fda ordered the company to stop selling those kids because it couldn't prove the technology was backed by science. they'll only offer information on your ancestry. >>> the owner of john's grill donated $20,000 to buy the devices. he said, he hopes it will save lives. the police chief thanked him at his restaurant this morning. he says the devices are an important edition to the patrol cars because police officers are the first on the scene in an emergency. and in cardiac arrest, every second counts. >>> delays at san jose international airport. that story is next. >>> if you think it's cr
in south africa in then 48. they set about passing a series of impressive laws of racial segregation. they western considered citizens. in 1960 when drarts went to the police station in the black town of sharpville and redanded to be arrested, they were protesting the node to have them in the first place. in response to that small act of rebellion, south african police officers opened fire on the crowd and scene people were killed that day. the young liberation leader named nelson mandela said it was that moment that radicalized him in the fight against apartheid, to beat the anc, it wouldn't be long before he was arrested and convicted of treason and sent away to prison for life. he recalls america and bren and across the west for governments to speak up, to use their power, their influence in a country where the west had huge investments in mining interests. to use that influence to free him and fight apartheid. >> that didn't happen. years passed. decades passed. an international movement sprung to boycott business, to di vest from them. to impose, to try to get governments to imp
with other family members for change to this country's laws. but so little has happened. obviously this has been a year of great loss for you, but also great frustration, mark? >> no. actually, i can't say frustration, chris. and i don't even think -- i don't like to think i'm fighting. i think we're trying -- i'd like to think i'm engaged in an effort and i'm approaching this with an open heart and mind to find real solutions and to work together with folks. >> where are those solutions, do you think? i mean, we had such high hopes last april. a background check bill supported by the president then failed. i know you must have seen this new poll. 49% of americans now support stricter laws. down from april and obviously from january just after the shooting. what do you think has happened? >> well, it's important to note, chris, that the umbrella figure of stricter laws is not specific to what we're talking about. i think most folks can agree on criminals and folks that are criminally insane shouldn't have firearms. and we're not about gun control, we're about gun safety. sandy hook promises
, the court declined to hear appeals by amazon and overstock.com to throw out a new york state law forcing them to collect sales tax even though they don't have a physical presence in that state. c-net news maggie is joining us to explain what it means for all of us who shop online. does the supreme court's refusal to hear this case about the new york law open the door for other states to start collecting sales tax from online purchases too? >> what it will probably do is some states may feel that they can pass some laws that will do this, as well. right now, not every state that has sales tax is collecting that on online purchases. and some states have passed these laws and some haven't yet. >> explain that. it depends on what state you live in in terms of how online taxing works. >> exactly. what's interesting here is in new york state, for example, they did pass, they were one of the first to pass a law that you would have to have sales tax collected but then in illinois, for example, they passed a similar law and that state supreme court threw out that law. and so now you have a situat
, but the train would not slow down. this is according to law enforcement who is at the scene. what could have caused that? >> well, it's two pieces. when did he hit the brakes, was he too far into the turn before he hit the brakes, so the recorders are going to tell us when and how much of an application he applied the brakes to. i assume he tried the emergency stop. so the recorders are going to tell us when that happened and just what that means to the accident, but there's a lot more to it than just the speed that this person was going or this train was going. if the condition of the rails, don't lose sight of the fact there was a previous derailment just months before this one at this location, so was the rails repaired properly, was there a problem with the underlying structure of the rails. all of those will be investigated thoroughly. >> the fact that there was an accident close to this location, does that set off warning bells to you? >> oh, yes. yes. the ntsb will focus in on that, definitely, for track condition and geometry. >> in the curve, this went from 70 miles per hour to 30 m
, too. >> a lot to look out for. >>> president obama vowing to keep fighting for the health care law, urging americans to focus on the benefits of obama care, despite the barrage of criticism over the rollout of healthcare.gov, that website that had so many problems. >> the bottom line is, this law is working, and will work into the future. people want the financial stability of health insurance. and we're going to keep on working to fix whatever problems come up in any startup, any launch of a project this big that has an impact on one-sixth of our economy. whatever comes up, we're going to just fix it. >> meanwhile, former president bill clinton says his recent suggestion that president obama keep his word and let people keep their health insurance plans was not aimed, or not trying to distance hills from the president's health care law in an effort to help his wife hillary's potential 2016 presidential bid. >> i said nothing about this. not one word, until the president himself spoke. i don't think you can find anybody in america who's worked harder for his re-election or supporte
argue that the plain text of the law limits subsidies to consumers in states that have created their own exchange, making it illegal for them to be offered through the federal exchange. michael canon is director of health policy studies at the cato institute. >> if the federal government establishes the exchange, those subsidies are not available, which means the subsidies aren't there to trigger penalties against employers and those individuals. so, what the obama administration is doing is saying, no, we're going to offer those subsidies in the 34 states that have refused to establish an exchange. the law does not allow them to do that. but when they do that, if they get away with it, then those subsidies will trigger, those illegal subsidies, will trigger illegal penalties against employers and individuals in those states. >> reporter: the government argues that the plaintiffs are misreading the law and taking a statute out of context, but that argument was not enough to stop a federal judge from allowing the suit from going forward. david, tell us, why are you suing the federal gover
administration's part on implementing the latest stage of the new law. it's not surprising the frustrations with the are at the all-time high. we know the frustrations run deeper than the most recent political battles. their frustration is rooted in their own daily battles fop make ends meet, to pay for college, buy a home, save for retirement. it's rooted in the nagging sense that no matter how hay work, the deck stacked against them. it's rooted in the fear they kids won't be better off than they were. they may not follow the constant back and forth in washington or all the policy details. but they experience in a very personal way the relentless decades long trend that i want to spend some time talking about today. that is a dangerous and growing inequality and lack of upward mobility that has jeopardizeed middle class america's basic bargain. if you work hard, you have a change to get ahead. i believe this is the defining challenge of our time. making sure our economy works for every working american. it's why i ran for president. it was the center of last year's campaign. it drives eve
facing the new health care law be solved? 54% do believe it will be solved. that's a level of credibility and belief in the system that presumably is very important. but let me ask you, congressman van hollen, we have seen delays in the still of the night. here are some of the headlines. the wednesday before thanksgiving now saying small businesses will have extra time before they can actually start signing up for health care benefits. should the individual mandate be delayed? this is the big part of health care. should that be delayed if you want this to work as well as it can? >> as you know, they already moved the deadline twice. they moved it to the end of march for the original mandate. we've extended this to december 23rd for people to sign up. we need to adapt. we need to make sure we address problems as they come up and try to work on them on a bipartisan basis. mike says it's not political. in my pocket, eric cantor issued this playbook against obama care the other day. they're not trying to work with us on these issues. yes, there are problems, there's no denying that. let's wor
